Aunt Pearl Stevens

15 Feb

I talked to Grandma Swart last night. Her Aunt Pearl in California passed away yesterday. She was the last living aunt.

There are no more uncles.

There are no more parents.

There are no more sisters.

It must be so sad to grow old and watch your family all depart from this life. A couple of years ago Aunt Pearl handcopied some information out of a family history book for me. She hand-copied it because she was unable to leave her house to get it copied at Kinko’s or somewhere of the like. The information had been in a book that the family in Oklahoma hadn’t seen since the 1970s. I asked Grandma to contact Pearl about it. She had a copy.

The information was about a slave auction the Thomason family had held back in Georgia in about 1860. It was pretty interesting. I’m glad she sent it to me. I can’t remember any of the specific information. I’ll try to post it later.
